Vancouver (BC) Canada – Loud Crow Interactive, award-winning developer and publisher of interactive digital stories, in partnership with Peanuts Worldwide LLC, today is proud to announce the launch of Charlie Brown’s All Stars! App for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, available exclusively on the App Store. This app is the latest in the highly-acclaimed series of interactive digital stories based on the iconic PEANUTS animated television specials.
Narrated by Stephen Shea, the voice of Linus van Pelt, the baseball-themed Charlie Brown’s All Stars! magically springs to life in this charming interactive storybook. Faithfully retold using beautifully re-mastered illustrations, voices and music from the original 1966 animated TV special, Peanuts fans will delight in sharing this nostalgic story of team spirit and friendship with a whole new generation of underdogs!
Will the PEANUTS gang win the biggest baseball game of the summer? With hundreds of animations and sound effects, readers can tap, tilt and swipe their way from the outfield to home plate along with their favorite Peanuts characters. Users can take on the role of pitcher or batter with the tap of a finger or tilt their device to catch high fly balls. Other interactive features include making team uniforms, performing skateboard tricks with the gang or hanging ten with a surfing Snoopy!
Kids and grownups can follow along at their own pace with both “read to me” and “read it myself” modes. The app provides educational opportunities by allowing readers to tap on an individual word to hear it read aloud. Word highlighting will help to improve reading skills and a handy table of contents bookmark makes it easy to jump to any page in the story.
